Thee Mailbox Doth Overflowith

May 22nd

It was an exciting weekend of mail at casa Africankelli.

First came a surprise from Lyn of Mollychicken. She sent me stenciled squares of fabric, an awesome crocheted creature and a tiny bag of tiny ribbons. I am thrilled!

I plan on adding these to the next batch of wristlets. They are so sweet! I’m not sure how she stenciled these — perhaps Grocco?

Paco, my new traveling companion, from Lyn

And meet Paco, my new traveling companion. Lyn’s daughter Molly is very interested in world affairs. As I travel this summer for work, I plan on bringing Paco along and photographing his adventures. Molly will be receiving updates as we conquer Central and South America.

Catrina, of Bumblefunck emailed me last week. As if redesigning her site wasn’t enough, she’d also made time to put together some incredible craft packages. She’s cleaning out some of her fabric stash and sent me a very generous portion.

Holy moley. This was so fun to go through and imagine how I am going to put this stash to use.

My favorite was certainly this dainty white eyelet fabric. I just love it.

Thank you Lyn and Catrina! You made my day!

  1. I am a little slow, I admit, but I didn’t catch where Paco came from? Who blessed you with this crocheted darling? Oh, and what is Grocco? I’m so out of it.

  2. Kinda like that gnome that got kidnapped & the kidnappers sent photos from all over the world with the gnome.

    I do hope Paco is small…don’t want to take up too much suitcase space.

    LOVE the fabric. I am thinking about making Sunday’s “sewing day”. Hmmm…gotta think on that one.

  4. Oooh! Fun mail – yay!!! That is the best. πŸ™‚

  5. Ok, Paco is absolutely adorable! Is he single? I guess not now that he lives with you. But I could so fall in love with that guy! Fabulous. And the stenciled squares of fabric are just too cute. I’ve long wanted a Gocco machine! Wah.
